Foster the most important relationship in the company

Communication between managers and their teams is arguably the most important factor for success in a business environment. It makes sure that everyone is focusing on the right things and aligns everyone around a common goal.

How to excel at manager communications


Communicate frequently. Too often managers will look at communication as a check-the-box type of activity. In reality, employees need (and often prefer) to hear messages multiple times.


Strive for transparency. Even if they don’t explicitly state it, your employees want to know what’s going on with the business and how they can contribute.


Be approachable. A good manager is easy to engage and communicate with. As a manager, always think about how to make it easy for your employees to approach you.

How KPMG enhances their comms with Smarp

KPMG Sweden was looking for a solution that would encourage employees to have more conversations around the business and the industry. Additionally, they wanted a platform that would help them address a key communications issue they were facing – the silo effect.

To enhance their communications program, KPMG brought on Smarp. Smarp immediately enabled KPMG managers to reach the right employee with the right information at the right time, greatly improving the employee experience and engagement with communications. Additionally, Smarp helped facilitate cross-functional communication by allowing employees to subscribe to comms from outside their own department.

This resulted in a more informed, connected and all-in-all productive workforce. Using Smarp has helped employees not only better coordinate their work internally, but has resulted in tangible external benefits as well.
